This Is My City + WP Puppet Theatre / View from the Inside: Courage Journey

The New Gallery is pleased to present ‘View from the Inside: Courage Journey’ at our +15 Window in Arts Commons (205 8 Ave SE) facilitated by This Is My City and WP Puppet Theatre.

The exhibition runs from April 3 to May 26, 2016, with a closing reception on Thursday, May 19 at 6:00 PM. The reception will be followed by drinks at the The Palomino Smokehouse and Social Club (109 7 St SW) from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. All TNG reception guests will receive 15% off their bill when they present the exhibition postcard. Admission is free and all are welcome.
___

View from the Inside: Courage Journey, is a puppetry-based project. The project has built a beautiful body of work that gives voice to people seeking to build resiliency, create community and raise their sense of self worth. This artwork explores the experiences of Calgarians who struggle in different ways with mental wellness. The masks featured in this exhibit are a sampling of the 40 that were created. Some of them the artists consider as finished, others are 'a work in progress', a reflection of our lives. The subtitle "Courage Journey" came from participant's responses as they went outside their comfort zones, and were vulnerable.

Ideal Bounds imagines a hypothetical near-future where the world’s bees have succumbed to colony collapse disorder. This wry, dystopian musing plays with signifiers one finds in present-day museum exhibits depicting species which have become extinct due to human causes.

Ruth Marsh has been creating the multi-disciplinary, community engaged series of works which make up Ideal Bounds, since 2011. Contributions of found, dead bees are mailed to Marsh’s Halifax studio from individuals across Canada. The bees are preserved and meticulously repaired using discarded technology. The newly restored bees are then given life, frame-by-frame, through the process of stop motion animation.

The hundreds of mended and refurbished bees line shelves in the gallery space, each in its own small, glass case. Viewers are further invited to engage with this grotesque narrative by taking in the DIY instructional video Bee Taxidermy: A How To Guide which demonstrates the step-by-step process of restoring one’s own bee. On an opposite wall, the stop-motion work, Reanimate, presents a vision of a cybernetically altered hive populated by bee automatons.

This work plays with themes of environmental loss through practical, labour intensive and repetitive explorations of radical transformation: life to death, reality to memory and the surrealistic degradation of information that occurs with each successive change of state. What is left after each phase gains more and more the uncanny strangeness of a close yet unfaithful copy and what is created in the end is something else altogether: an irrevocably altered, transubstantiated other.

Paddle Canada's Waterwalker Film Festival is a tribute to the late Bill Mason, the great conservationist, canoeist and filmmaker. Mason once stated, "The medium of film is for me a means of expressing my love and enjoyment of the natural world, and of sharing my concern for what's happening to it with anybody who looks and listens."

Mason's idea of success was to be able to communicate through his films, books and paintings the intense feelings he had for his surroundings, and to somehow inspire others into sharing and adopting these thoughts and concerns.

Passionate in his beliefs, always speaking from the heart, his films inspired many people to dedicate themselves to the enjoyment and conservation of Canada's wilderness and waterways.

A tough economy means many local artists are also feeling the slow down of their sales, especially those with a disability.


Joseph Hnatuk is a local artist and has schizophrenia, which currently affects more than 300,000 Canadians. It interferes with a person's ability to think clearly, manage emotions, make decisions and relate to others and it impairs a person's ability to function to their potential when it is not treated. Unfortunately, no single, simple course of schizophrenia treatment exists. For many years Joseph has used art to safely and creatively express his inner thoughts. He is able to release his fears and anxieties about things he may have seen or dreamed about. By doing this, he can find peace in his day to day life. It is a very literal experience that Joseph has when creating his art.



“You will notice in some of his pieces a darker theme and tone, something Joseph refers to as ‘the darkness’”, says Vandy Midha, Owner of ArtMatch. “When we approached Joseph to help promote his work, we saw this as a wonderful opportunity to collaborate. The art show will not only expose Joseph’s artwork, but also bring awareness and exposure to the great organizations that support him in Calgary”.



On Sunday, May 29th, 2016, ArtMatch (a locally owned Calgary business) is hosting an art show promoting 25 local artists, with special guest Joseph Hnatuk. A portion of sales will go towards supporting persons with disabilities. For the past 8 years, Joseph has been part of Vecova's employment services, building clientele and working to market his artwork in Calgary. Vecova Centre for Disability Services and Research is a non-profit service and research organization for people with disabilities.

The Calgary Chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada is presenting its annual Gutsy Walk.
The goal is to raise money for research and to raise awareness about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, which together are known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Approximately 1 in 160 Canadians are affected by IBD. Canada is believed to have one of the highest rates of IBD in the world. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are the two most common forms of IBD. Crohn’s disease involves inflammation of any part of the gastrointestinal tract, while ulcerative colitis involves only the large bowel. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are both chronic illnesses. They are painful, and can be socially isolating due to the "embarrassment factor".

From handcrafts to pottery, jewelry to carpets, marbling to calligraphy, Turkish coffee to baklava, it was as if the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul was brought to Calgary.

Cyclepalooza is a volunteer-directed, community-based, bicycle-themed festival promoting arts, culture, events, and fun in Calgary. It was formed out of the desire among Calgary area cyclists to bring more publicity and interest to cycling and its positive impacts on communities, and to bring communities together through cycling.

Inspired by Portland’s Pedalpalooza and Vancouver’s Velopalooza, Cyclepalooza is 10 days of bike events and fun that occurs June 23rd to July 2nd.

Cyclepalooza operates on the same organizational model as Pedalpalooza and Velopalooza: A small committee of volunteers provides publicity and organizational support (and a couple of organized events). For the most part, however, the festival is run by individuals, groups, and businesses, who organize their own events. The Cyclepalooza calendar serves to advertise these events, and the Cyclepalooza committee and volunteer force promote the festival as a whole and assist with individual events. There aren’t that many of us, though, and no-one gets paid to do it. So initiative and engagement are welcome! Everyone can host an event, and you don’t need permission or approval to contribute an event to Cyclepalooza. See the Ride Guide for some suggestions on how to go about organizing an event, then add it to the calendar.

An amazing annual showcase of makers, local innovation and creativity in Calgary--and one of the best ways to experience the energy of the Maker Movement, the 2015 edition of the Calgary Mini Maker Faire takes place on September 12 and 13 (Sat & Sun) at TELUS Spark from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

We're very excited to be back at TELUS Spark again this year, sharing creativity and imagination with everyone who walks through the door. It's two fun-filled days exploring all the cool projects that often stay hidden away in basements, garages, barns and makerspaces. This event teases out all that creativity and showcases the passion of the people who build these marvellous things. Expect to leave inspired and amazed.

A sample of things to expect at this year's Faire:

Webby award-winning and Emmy-nominated EepyBird (of Coke & Mentos YouTube fame) will be returning as our headline act. You'll be able to make and fire a paper rocket high into the air. You'll be able to shoot drones that when hit release balls of fire into the air. There'll also be opportunities to learn how to dye, batt, and spin wool, to solder, control robots, laser cut your own name tag, and take part in countless other immersive activities.

Your Calgary Mini Maker Faire admission gains you access to not just our original Mini Maker Faire programming, but access to all the regular TELUS Spark exhibits and hands-on areas as well. With over 100+ exhibits, workshops, panel discussions, speaker presentations and other activities to see and participate in, you'll want to attend both days to fit it all in!

The YWCA Walk A Mile in Her Shoes fundraising event helps women and their children take steps to walk away from family violence. Although family violence is a very serious matter, this is a fun and light-hearted event. On event day join local celebrities and other concerned men by strapping on high heels to find out what it is like to "Walk A Mile in Her Shoes." Shoes and lunch will be provided, so all you have to do is register as an individual, create your own team or join an existing team and come strut your stuff. Only men can register to participate, however we know from experience that women play a huge part in this event by encouraging men to take part, assisting them in fundraising to reach their goal and cheering them on during the event.

This is a donation-based event with no registration fee. The recommend goal per participant is $1,000 which will help us to reach our goal of $300,000 that much faster.

So join us from 11am to 2pm at Olympic Plaza to “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes!”

Liberate your inner rock star while racing past bands, jugglers and belly dancers (we told you it was awesome).

The Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will take place on Stephen Avenue Mall in support of The Golden Age Club. This unique walk event will take place during the lunch hour and cover four blocks on Stephen Avenue Mall in Downtown Calgary with the goal to raise awareness and much needed funds for The Golden Age Club. The Golden Age Club offers a variety of social, recreational, health and outreach programs for Calgary's seniors' population.

The Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will consist of a walk like no other and feature walkers of all ages and backgrounds. Individual walkers over the age of sixty-five, individual walkers under the age of sixty-five and corporate teams will be coming together to celebrate the contributions older adults make to our city. The Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will include a unique twist - with all walkers under the age of sixty-five having to walk the event route balancing an egg on a spoon – signifying the difficulties many seniors have getting around day to day.

All walkers who participate in the Annual Calgary Seniors Walk will raise pledges in support of The Golden Age Club and have a minimum of $20 entry fee to the event. Prizes will be given for the most money raised by an individual under the age of sixty-five, most money raised by an individual over 65, most money raised by a team and the walker who crosses the finish line first with their egg unbroken.

It is estimated that over 1,000 walkers will participate in the Annual Calgary Seniors Walk and we anticipate thousands more will watch this unique event as our walkers dawn their bright yellow t-shirts and make their way through Stephen Avenue Mall with their eggs balancing on their spoons. The event is being designed to not only raise funds – but raise awareness for our seniors.
